No.5 is a project designed by Covet & Noir. “We love working with creative clients, it makes for a really fun and collaborative design process. On this particular project our clients had been travelling the world for the past decade touring & recording music and really wanted to set up a home base for the first time.

Born from a close cooperation between client and architect, this family home designed by Benyei Architectural Studio is a testament to the sort of building that can come from a bold and compelling idea and an architect that can enhance such boldness while still maintaining a keen eye for sophistication and brevity. And while luxury was an underpinning facet of the build, it was a careful, tactful understanding of moderation that has helped turn it into something noteworthy. Photography by Zsolt Batár
ONE-CU created a model villa for “THE LANDSCAPE MANSION” — a residential property developed by Poly South China, which is located in Sihui, Zhaoqing, China. “Si” and “hui” in Chinese respectively mean “four” and “convergence”, the city was named so because four rivers converge in it. With a history of thousands of years and rapid development driven by surrounding prosperous cities including Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai, Sihui has become an integration of the old and new and enjoys a supremely livable environment.
Architect Ivan Kachalov designed a penthouse with an outdoor terrace, a winter garden and a wood burning fireplace in a prestigious new house in the Khamovniki district. The apartment is located on the top floor of a residential complex and has a huge advantage – an exploited roof hovering over the city. The result was a status interior with a view of the iconic Moscow architecture, luxurious and functional.
